Gallery: Brooklyn Grange is the World’s Largest Rooftop Farm!

Located atop a six-story 1919 warehouse, the 40,000 square foot organic Brooklyn Grange rooftop farm built by Bromley Caldari Architects is believe to be the largest of its kind in the world! The almost 1-acre farm is an oasis surrounded by little greenery and lots of concrete in Queens at 37-18 Northern Boulevard. After a successful first growing and selling season that began in the spring of 2010, the farmers at Brooklyn Grange are continuing their production of organic produce that includes 40 varietals of juicy tomatoes, peppers, fennel, salad greens, kale, swiss chard, beans of all sorts and a variety of delicious root vegetables like beets, carrots, and radishes, as well as plenty of herbs.

    I would like to visit your roof gardens and learn to adopt your technology. I am a retired physician with some time to spend on greens. With rising cost of living and especially of food plus the threat of GMOs, people will benefit from planting vegetables in their own back yard or rooftops. We are learning from you. Thank you.

    The air pollution and airborne toxins that can come down with the rain is a problem. ….basically rooftop gardening is a sound idea. It is happening all over – Peace

    Green roofs are the future. Functional, sustainable and beautiful.

    Is it larger than the roof-top greenhouse in Montreal? There is one that is 31000 square feet on an industrial building, Lufa Farms, they sell veggies all year round too!

    Really really popular in Cuba.. ( they don’t really have a choice).
    Marcus: The freon in the airconditionning usually stays in the machine.
    About the smog… Are you serious ?

    apparently you didn’t read it all marcus, they are year round, and i would take smog over the pesticides and herbicides used on conventional farms.

    how is this organic?? you have air conditioners on the roof.. freon or puron refrigerant ISN”T ORGANIC… neither is the smog from the city!…. build a green house and CONTROL the environment in which it grows… and you can harvest all year round… this will increase the food production…. just at thought
